  • The Gatekeepers cuts deeper than any political thriller. It's a powerhouse. show more

  • Until this film, these Shin Bet directors had never consented to an interview. Now that they've spoken - and have said the unexpected - we can only wonder if their words will have an influence. show more

  • The Israeli journalist Dror Moreh has hit a documentarian's trifecta with The Gatekeepers. It's an exemplary piece of enterprise journalism, a vivid history of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and a polemic that's all the more remarkable for the shared experience of the polemicists. show more

    Oh cool! Israeli pro-war propaganda given a moviephone \"PICK!\" label and a 4 1/2 star rating by critics and 2 1/2 rating by viewers. Nothing suspect about that at all. I guarantee you; this movie sets out to brainwash uneducated nitwits to rally behind Israel while they kill all native Palestinians

    This movie sucks. What a complete waste of time. Don\'t waste your money, most of these scenes are in the trailer and Guess What NO ONE care what happens there. It\'s just another Cuba. Save your money and watch an actual film.

    Interesting perspcetive on Israeli-Palestinian conflict, reflective of our current situation in Afghanistan. It either took courage to participate in this movie or a large salary.
